Where do you buy your gears

Where does everyone buy there gears. I am ready to order my gears for my 44 and 9in rears. I know its cheaper to buy one of those package deals with lockers and blah blah blah but are the gears any good. I am using a dana factory posi in the front and a detroit in the rear. I have to buy the detroit still. Thanks

Can someone please bring me a hammer my 33's just ate my fender again. Damn i need more lift.

Re: Where do you buy your gears

I have heard nothing but excellent things about Randy's ring & pinion. I personally purchased from Drive Train Direct, They had great prices but did screw up the order. They corrected the order, and offered additional incentive to appease me. I thought they did a good job.

just my 0.02

Re: Where do you buy your gears

In 1994, I regeared my '84 CJ-7 (which I no longer have). I bought my gears/lockers from DTS (Drive Train specialists). The pinion for the rear 20 was chipped. I called, told them of the situation and was told this would not hurt anything.. my opinion differs from theirs, I wanted a new, matched set, both ring and pinion, so they agreed to take it back and send a new one. Four days later, UPS arrives at my from door... guess what, the same set. I called back and was told that I "dropped it". I'm an honest person, if I would have dropped it, I would have ate it and bought a new set.. packaging consisted of all parts being wrapped in brown paper and boxed. A friend bought lockers/gears from Reider Racing a few weeks later, everything came in styrofoam packaging designed to hold all components, 100 % better packaging than mine. I ended up getting a new ring and pinion, but not until getting my Credit Card company involved and fighting for three weeks. Yesterday morning I posted a pic of my next winter project, gearing and some type of lockers will be a major part of it and I too will be looking for a place to buy from. Just thought i'd pass this on, paying by credit card really can be helpful! just don't go overboard!
